    “Carpenter went 23-27 on FG’s this year, and 34-40 on XPs.

    You read that right. He missed MORE XP’s than FG’s by a 6-4 margin.”

    That is exactly the same percentage, 15%. Nothing ghastly about that.

      And when was the last year a kicker missed the same percentage of extra points as field goals?

    Thanks Jerome. Czabe apparently didn’t do well in math.

    LOL worst math example ever by Czabe. Good grief.

    If they’re really missing more XP’s then the change is working — it should be motivation for the coaches to start going for the more exciting 2-point conversion.

    The FGs attempted include tries from well beyond 33, including 5 over 50 in Carpenter’s case. So, if his FG% is about equal to his XP%, the author’s point is comfirmed.

    Did the math, Czabe:

    30-39 FG: Attempted – 265, Made – 250. 94.34%
    XPoints: Attempted – 1195, Made – 1127. 94.31%

    There goes your theory, my friend. They are made with the same frequency. Glad you put in that link – made it easy to find the stats. Other than that, keep up the good work. Love the blog.
